The upcoming biopic on McDonald’s ­mastermind, Ray Kroc, will showcase the dark side of the franchise, says actor-filmmaker Laura Dern.

The Jurassic Park star, who will play Kroc’s (Michael Keaton) first wife, Ethel, insists that the film will be a true depiction of the fast food franchise and what it meant to Americans in really ­positive ways.

“I had a lot of curiosity about how we got here, we meaning Americans, in terms of the idea of the seemingly brilliant ­concept to serve ‘unreal’ food to make a lot of money and what it’s done to America,” Dern said.

The 48-year-old added that she was interested in Kroc as an individual and “what gets sacrificed when greed is a priority or ­self-loathing in a way is a priority to his own life”. Directed by The Blind Side helmer John Lee Hancock, The Founder also stars Linda Cardellini, Nick Offerman and Patrick Wilson in lead roles.
